Why Is A 3-Year/36,000-Mile Warranty Such A Big Deal?

Some auto repair shops offer warranties for certain parts. Often, when you look closely those warranties aren’t worth very much. There may be a ton of hoops you have to jump through. Or, they might just want you to get on their mailing lists. We’re thinking of those “warranties” that come with appliances like a crockpot that aren’t really warranties at all.   Bad Warranties Are Everywhere Sometimes an extended warranty doesn’t make sense to buy. It’s a numbers game when a company selling an appliance offers you an extended warranty: the company knows how often people forget they have the warranty, don’t use it, or forget they have it in the first place. So they usually make money when...

Tune-Up

Quite often, a customer will call and ask for a "Tune-Up" believing that this is the "fix" for a poor running engine, a check engine light, etc. Although in some cases, replacing the spark plugs may repair a poor running engine, it quite often makes no difference simply because it is not the cause of the problem at hand.
